Stock Description

Thirty meticulous cutaways detail a range of McDonnell Douglas aircraft from the pre-merger Douglas World Cruiser, to the seminal DC-3 airliner, the F-15 fighter, and the MD-90 jetliner. Badrocke's cutaways (which include ten gatefolds) and color plates provide an invaluable resource for modelers, and are wonderfully complemented by a selection of 100 archival photographs. Each of the aircraft featured, from the ubiquitous McDonnell Douglas jetliners to such fascinating but nearly forgotten machinery as the F-101 Voodoo and AH-64A Apache helicopter, is discussed by aviation historian Bill Gunston, who provides detailed development, production, and service histories, as well as vital specifications, for each aircraft.
